Larry Earl Fisher[1] (August 21, 1949 – June 10, 2015) was a Canadian who was convicted in 1999 of a murder he committed 30 years earlier.

On January 31, 1969, 20-year-old nursing student Gail Miller was found raped and murdered in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, in the neighborhood where Miller lived. David Milgaard was wrongfully convicted of the crime and served 23 years in prison before being released in 1992, and exonerated by DNA evidence in 1997. Fisher was arrested on July 25, 1997 in Calgary and convicted of Miller's murder on November 22 of that year. Fisher, who had previously served a total of 23 years for numerous rapes committed in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, was handed a life sentence. The Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan unanimously denied the appeal of his conviction in September 2003.

Fisher was eligible for parole on multiple occasions but opted not to have his case heard by the National Parole Board.[2] He died on June 10, 2015 at the Pacific Institution in Abbotsford, British Columbia.[3]
